Abstract:
The programme of work was required to discharge a planning condition placed on the planning permission 56751/FUL by Stoke-on-Trent City Council. The proposed development is for the demolition of the former Dresden Primary Infant School Building. The work was carried out in accordance with a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) which was prepared in response to a brief issued by the council. The WSI was agreed with the Stoke-on-Trent City Archaeologist prior to the commencement of the project. The interior of the building in its original form is dictated by functionality. The floor plans reveal a focus upon the movement of children into, through and out of the building in an orderly and easily controlled fashion. Dresden infant school dates from a period when education for all was becoming an increasingly important concern for the country as a whole. In Dresden the sharp increase in population as a result of the highly successful pottery industries in the area meant that the established school became rapidly overcrowded resulting in the need for a new school building. The simplicity of the building was the result of both functionality and frugality, whilst its evenly proportioned principal elevation, coupled with the application of few but high quality details and fixtures, reflects the wider architectural principals of its era. As the role of schools developed and the requirements of the school changed so did the building, although its simple and practical form as well as the option to share facilities and resources with the junior school building meant that save for the 1950s toilet blocks few structural alterations were ever proposed or effected.
